It seems like the 45 digit level isn't needed anymore:

Hence, I don't know whether is it efficient to do stage2 for the B1=11e6 curves. Is there someone who can update the tables to a more proper representation of the current ECM effort?
In other words:
How precise are Bruce's words, and is it possible for George to precisely update the tables accordingly?

I think this is quite an issue, as there are probably several people who waste CPU time on digit levels that are virtually impossible to have a factor.
